One Secret Love + One Misdirection and Multiple Situationships = Courting Country

Taggart Bauman has secretly loved Kylie Gordon since they were young, but she married his best friend. When Kylie is widowed, Taggert promises to take care of her. And even though he could be free to profess his love, he chooses to keep his feelings a secret. If Kylie knew that he’d failed to save her husband, she’d never forgive him. He knows, because he can’t forgive himself.

After being alone for so long, Kylie believes an online dating service is her last chance at finding love. But she continually finds herself in “situationships” that require Taggert to rescue her. When at last she reconnects with Eldon Wenz, an old friend from their college years, she thinks perhaps this is finally her second chance at love…but just in case, she asks Taggert to accompany her when she travels to Eldon’s ranch.

But sometimes things are not what they seem, and when one more situationship crops up, Taggart vents his resentment and tells Kylie she needs to work out the choices she’s making.

Will Taggart lose Kylie forever, friendship and all, or will Kylie realize that what she’s been searching for has been right in front of her the whole time?

what you can expect from Courting Country

by LoRee Peery, author of Courting Country

Since Courting Country is a romance the reader expects a happy ending. I know a few couples who met off dating sites and have been happy. A friend met a man off a dating site, and after a time, they agreed to meet. He rather went out of his way to make that happen. But desperation can drive others to online dating. Kylie tries to “help” God by pushing things in her life rather than trust and believe He can handle her future.

Here’s the back cover blurb:

Taggart Bauman has secretly loved Kylie Gordon since they were young, but she married his best friend. When Kylie is widowed, Taggart promises to take care of her. And even though he could be free to profess his love, he chooses to keep his feelings a secret. If Kylie knew that he’d failed to save her husband, she’d never forgive him. He knows, because he can’t forgive himself.

After being alone for so long, Kylie believes an online dating service is her last chance at finding love. But she continually finds herself in “situationships” that require Taggart to rescue her. When at last she reconnects with Eldon Wenz, an old friend from their teen years, she thinks perhaps this is finally her second chance at love…but just in case, she agrees for Taggart to accompany her when she travels to Eldon’s ranch.

But sometimes things are not what they seem, and when one more situationship crops up, Taggart vents his resentment and tells Kylie she needs to work out the choices she’s making.

Will Taggart lose Kylie forever, friendship and all, or will Kylie realize that what she’s been searching for has been right in front of her the whole time?

I also hope the reader sees humor, because some of rancher Eldon’s antics are off the charts funny. One writing gift I appreciate is humor, and I’m not good at it because it doesn’t come naturally to my writing. My friend agreed I could use some of this lonely man’s life in a story and how she saw the humor in the situation. I’ve never known his name or where he lived. This is an example of what my friend shared, she was afraid to eat anything at his house.

“Dinner turned out to be just plain weird. He had a diet of red beans he’d cooked in a crockpot that hadn’t been washed in forever – and it looked as though he’d used it forever. He’d fill it with red beans and water, soak them then cook them and when finished, put in the refrigerator, pot and all. When the beans were gone, he’d start the procedure all over without washing the pot in between filling and soaking it with beans. While cooking the beans would ooze over the sides and boil on top of what had cooked there before, never wiped off. Beyond gross.”

In Courting Country Eldon’s life could be viewed as sad, but I gave him a good ending.
